"Grace" as written by Andy Bell and Vince Clarke....
Looking in the papers makes me sorry to be human
A little ray of hope won't hurt at all
A price on every head and it's cheaper when you're dead
Quality of life may have to fall

Muffled voices, world in action
Stir the peaceful, need for longing

I cannot describe the fear inside my heart
I hereby do swear to live my life in accordance with grace

Guess it's human nature to be cruel and heartless
But that's no reason to shoot him when he's down
Crawl in on your knees and then bite the hand that feeds
The cages throw their shadows across the ground

Where's the sense in senseless violence
Hear the silence too forgiving

I cannot describe the fear inside my heart
I hereby do swear to live my life in accordance with grace (grace, grace)

Press your hands in, into the pavement
Bathed in glory, here's your moment

I cannot describe the fear inside my heart
(I hereby do swear to live my life in accordance with grace)
I hereby do swear to live my life in accordance with grace
(I cannot describe the fear inside my heart)

I cannot describe the fear inside my heart
(I hereby do swear to live my life in accordance with grace)
I hereby do swear to live my life in accordance with grace
(I cannot describe the fear inside my heart)

    General CommentTerrific lyrics to me. It's talking about a soldier who died during a war under cowardly circunstances on being caught by his enemies. On the 1st part it's still exists a hope that he could be alive, but on the 2nd one his death is a fait accompli, so some relative from him asks the reason why he should die since he was already defenseless when he was caught by those enemies. All of this serves to show how worthless human existence seems during a war and how useless the glory given by this same war is... And, in fact, after seeing all the misfortune provoked by a war, that relative just wants to hold some kind of hope for helping him to recover from this while his heart is tasting a terrible feeling of fear, since he also could have been a victim of this same senseless war.
